Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma - Long Island

Rochielle's Belles

Scleroderma is a chronic, often progressive, autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks its own body. It can cause thickening and tightening of the skin. In some cases, it causes serious damage to internal organs. As scarring, or sclerosis, of these organs progress, they work less effectively and can lead to organ failure. There is no cure for scleroderma. The disease affects about 300,000 people across the U.S.

About 6 years ago I was diagnosed with scleroderma. So far it has been a long and extensive journey. Although it is something that I struggle with every single day, I have chosen to not let it stop me from living the life I want to live. Due to the pandemic we are walking virtually this year. Please show your support and donate!
